Garth Ennis' 'The Boys' Heads To Amazon

Its been long road for the adaptation of Garth Ennis 'The Boys,' Variety reports that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have received a script order from Amazon and is being eyed for a possible straight-to-series pickup.

Based on the comic book series by “Preacher” creator Garth Ennis, the series is set between 2006–2008 in a world where superheroes exist. However, most of the superheroes in the series' universe are corrupted by their celebrity status and often engage in reckless behavior, compromising the safety of the world. For this reason, a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as "The Boys", is charged with monitoring the superhero community; the name is Butcher's contribution, a reference from his neighborhood that those in power would send "the boys" to handle anyone causing trouble.

The hour-long drama is being written by Eric Kripke, with executive producers Rogen and Goldberg set to direct.
